A pretty standard FPVCycle TP3 type of build, but on the HaloRC Guitarpick frame, since that's easier to get in Europe. The frame seems really awesome so far, feels very durable, it's 2.5mm thick but only 7.5g of weight (which is 2-3g less than the original TP3 frame I think).

The only thing I don't like about this build is the awkward placement of the capacitor, but I couldn't figure out a better way to mount it (not sure it's really necessary to have one at all though?).

Could easily make this a bit lighter by dropping the prop screws, using a lighter VTX without DVR, using a lighter antenna and removing the buzzer. But this flies pretty amazing already and I like those features :-)

Another nice build. That's a pretty cool frame. Quite versatile with a whole lot of build options. Might have to order one in the near future.

The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
